Duke Falcon's E-files - links in the 1.st post!

Post by Duke Falcon » 2019-09-23 19:17, Monday

As a main post, here and now, you can gather some information about my e-folders, e-files and mods I created for the different Generals.
Currently these are as much as but the list may expand later. Please, here you shall not find any WW2 things at all. This topic is for different themes, styles, call it a bright spot in the dark forest of WW e-files, if you like. Let us see then, what this small meadow may provide YOU, dear possible future player of my mods!

To find contents: Descriptions with long banners are "milestone" versions! Patches and other extras represented by small sprites toward the bottom of this post!

Xeno General is my first e-folder for OpenGen featuring extraterrestrial alien forces and sci-fi stuffs. Players could play many different campaign what together provide a complete story line of this OG universe. The Xeno General now reached it's pinnacle in the form of "Complete".
NOTE: This e-folder needs the latest executable (as of 2019.08.01. available) what uses SDL2! This means Win7 or higher is recommended to run all it's contents properly!
Xeno General Complete is the complete, single-package version of XG creating a folder for itself. It also contains descriptive PDFs about the contents. It is about 305 MBs:

This is a mod converted\conversed from People's General (PeG). As such it is ready to play on it is own and not need the original PeG game, nor OpenGeneral.
As the title suggest the mod took place in the legendary Sengoku-jidai, a great political and military turmoil in the medieval Japan what ended when Tokugawa Iyeasu finally founded it's bakufu, the Tokugawa-Shogunate.
To download this click on this banner:

It is ~81 MB in size to download.

Fantasy General mod or may call e-folder is the resurrection of the old and fantastic Fantasy General game from the five stars generals series. While it has the same units and heroes this revival has a different story and six nations instead of three. And while the playable sides are still good and evil there are neutral factions whom shall join to the different sides during the campaigns and maybe do leave them on certain points of the story. This e-folder use big single-face icons what gives a strong fantasy feeling for the game. Full version includes 2 campaigns and a pdf manual all in a "EFILE_FG" folder what simply copy into the OpenGeneral main folder! It is strongly recommended for general players to play the campaigns on 150:100 player:AI prestige modifiers otherwise the game may be utterly hard!
Click the banner to download the zip archive:
Image
Download size is ~140 MB.

And this is an additional campaign for FG. Overwrite a few things as it contains some fixes of sounds. Needs an existing EFILE-FG to work!
Image
Download size is about 40 MB.


Image
Dune e-folder is exactly what is may sounds: an OG ported version of the great Arrakis-saga. All the well-known Houses of Frank Herbert's Dune is implemented along with a few more just to compete for Dune and the spice Melange. Full, finished version contain 8 campaigns and 10 stand-alone-scenarios. To get it click on this banner:
Image
Download size is ~200 MB.



And completely different things' common place should be here. Yes, here, since this place is as good as anything else. First CD picture is contains a link to download my OG tracks made for Xeno General and Fantasy General. Since these mods not always plays musics I thought I share the music tracks like this. Hearing them in themselves may sound strange but believe me that during the game they will be perfect and not odd even the slightest tiny piece of bits. Please, note that I not made only remastered and\or remixed these musics so I have no copyrights over them and nor does You! Track infos are in the zip archive along with the musics (108 MBs download size). The starship lead you, if click on it, to a patch for Xeno General Extented what contains minor changes and balances for equipment file and bugfixes for scenarios. After extraction of the zip archive simply overwrite the XGX folders files with the new ones! Size is about 7MBs. The witch is the gateway to obtain the Fantasy General patch what not only fixes bugs but also adds ground transport units for the game in exchange of ~2MBs of download! The map-looking icon leads to a collection of maps and scenarios for FG and also some minor fixes (just overwrite everything and you will be OK!) plus adds ammo-supply units for both campaigns! The Dak-trooper leads to another XG-patch what also contains a new campaign (137 MBs). And if you click on Arrakis then you receive a patch for Dune e-file along with 6 new stand-alone scenarios! It is only 28MBs, so click!

Lately I found my PeG Sengoku and it give some very bad idea:

These are only a few items so far and some factions not even sketched so far (Sóhei warrior monks, e.g.). And it need so many changes in the current GUI files, like:
- Flags in size of 24x24 (this is the smallest size where a kamon remain recogniseable, no way to make it in the current 21x14) or 21x24 but that may looks stretched
- More attack animations like clashing swords for melee, arrow rain for ranged combat and gunfire for firearms

Maps could be made in heavily f**ked HoMM 4 editor (I mean I may need to change the ingame sprites for japanese buildings and such). So it is a long term project (3-5 years) if I decide to continue and make it...
